Idk if there is a better beginning to any song than the other one, or a more awesome bass line.

Are there any musicians out there that can give me an accurate write out of the notes played by phil's other one intro bass line?

maybe the tabs I read just seem wrong due to the speed of the line, so maybe confirmation of a certain tab would at least help me feel like I'm on the right track and just need to become a faster player.

both tabs or notes are fine.

Thanks in advance

I can't read music.

Do you have anything for bass? I dont own a six string.

Are those Jerry's notes?

Sure you can, it’s just a slightly different language.

The piano, rhythm and lead guitar are all familiar, however the four string Fender Bass and Drumming remains a mystery.

Willie Dixon was the man. Paul McCartney had the beat, both on piano and bass, Phil is a master of foundation and improvisation.

I understand the tunings on a bass guitar are E A D G however you could transpose those notes/tabs if you choose to delve further into the science of musicianship.

The art is delivered from the soul.

What a crock! You obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Why do you carry on this way?

"Idk if there is a better beginning to any song than the other one, or a more awesome bass line."

...And I don't know if there is a more thunderous opening for a TOO than this one:

(The Dicks Picks is DEFINITELY better sound Q.)

The first 7 1/2 minutes are some of my favorite GD minutes, period!

Enjoy,

that other one is a pure monster. At times it gets so thunderous its like a train wreck, but in a good way. And the climax around 6 minutes with jer shredding... perfection.

I had a friend who was really into rap and had quite the subwoofer set up in his car. I asked to play DP 18 TOO in his car to see how it sounded. The intro was merely car shaking, you couldnt even make out the notes.

"...it gets so thunderous its like a train wreck..."

A "rampaging pack of pachyderms" always came to my mind.

I also love that tone Jerry has around the three-minute mark. It's a strange sound; I've never heard him play that note[s] again.

This is another favorite from the same ilk:

The whole second set is beastly: Playin>Estmated>Drums>TOO>Truckin !!! Playin and Estimated would consume over half of your lunch hour.

Enjoy,
